    Default Solo Flight North Pakistan 2011 - Biking, Hiking, Hitchhiking, Jeep Safari & NATCO

    Alhamdullillah, I have completed my North Trip alone. 16.07.2011 to 30.07.2011 alone. Joined 4 groups in way. Enjoyed a lot. Earned friends and memories.


    I have travalled from Multan to Mansehra in Shalimar AC Coach with bike loaded on top.

    From Mansehra I have started my biking trip to Naran and Jalkhad, Chilas, Gilgit. Then visited Hunza Duikar (Eagle Nest), Karimabad and Ataabad Lake.

    On return from Hunza I have visited Naltar lake on bike alone.

    After return to Gilgit from Naltar, I parked my bike in Jamal Hotel and set off via NATCO to Skardu. From Skardu visited Sadpara Deosai, Chillam and Astore.

    From Astore I went Raikot, visited fairy meadow and returned back to Gilgit. From Gilgit visited Yaseen Valley. From Yaseen returned back to Gilgit. and there on Public Transport Coaster returned to Rawalpindi.

    From Rawalpindi I have visited Nathia Gali and back to Pindi. From Pindi via Skyways started Journey to Home (Multan)

    Thanks

    Summery of Day


    Day-11 - 26.07.2011

    9am Departure from Fairy Meadow
    Mr. Sufwan and Mr. Shin helped me much while risking thier own lives, while descending from the dangerous trek of fairy meadow. They holded me, when i was slipping from the trek going into the deep valley. Though I am normal trekker of Margallas and Galyat, i still found it hectic and dangerous. I couldn't get there my foot stable... I was like a roller coaster... i was skating on the gravel... Though I got no significant problem while going upside...

    12noon Reached to Jeep Point

    1pm Reached Raikot

    Wait a lot for any transport. The local policeman helped a lot...
    Finally got a taxi car (Rs. 60 or 80 per head upto Jaglot). On Jaglot, I see off the other group. they were heading to Astore. My trip was on the end... got tired of mountains... bit home sick... days and money was in my pocket. But the main threat was the monsoon rains.. if that started I may stuck in Gilgit... and office pohanchna bhi zaroori tha... Bike Gilgit ma Park thee tou Gilgit Chala gaya...

    5pm. Jaglot to Gilgit
    Stay at Jamal Hotel Gilgit

    Raat ko Mr. Jaffer Hotel Manager say discuss kia... He was from Phandar... He wanted me to see his area... I decided to go to Phandar next day...

    Day-12 - 27.07.2011

    Want to see Phander. Went to NATCO Punyal Road Terminal Gilgit. There are two terminals of NATCO in Gilgit... The Chitral/Phandar, Ishkoman, Gahkooch, Gupis transport from Punial Road Terminal. The rest transport runs from the Gilgit Main General Bus Stand...

    Only Yaseen Hiace was available. No phandar transport available.
    Sat in Yaseen Hiace... Lunch at Gahkooch - District HQ of Ghizar...

    I enjoyed the weather and scnery very much..

    Then Gupis.. and then Yaseen... Yaseen is totally different from Hunza etc... It is a long valley... It is very wide and green... In Hunza, Gilgit Skardu area, you find greenry in patches... But this whole valley is green... oops.. There is no noise of noisy river like other valleys... the river is away from the main population... The road is good and safe in yaseen.. Road do'nt have any ravine on its side...

    People of the valley are very friendly.. Valley is very safe...

    Valley is very wide.. ca'nt compare with any valley... You can say it is a wide long plain area...The valley starts from Gupis, which is ahead Gahkooch on Gilgit Chitral Road...


    5pm Reached Taus Chowk Yaseen. My aim was to reach at the end of the valley... Yaseen is tehsil HQ of the valley... ahead yaseen village, at a place Barkulti where the valley sub diviided into Darkut River valley and Thue River Valley...

    At Barkulti these rivers joins and make Yaseen river... which joins Gilgit River/Ghizar river at Gupis area...

    There is no transport available from the valley after 6am in morning... Amazing.. the whole transport hiaces from different villages for Gilgit and Gahkuch runs between 5am to 6am...

    In Darkoot there is no hotel... Last hotel in valley is Hundur and Taus Chowk.


    6.30pm Took a lift from a Hiace reached Barkulti.


    Start trek to Hundur Village but got a lift from Local biker upto Havaldar Lalak Jan Mazar in Hundur.

    Hunder Village, where the last hotel of Yaseen valley.

    Night stay at Tourist Cottage Hundur @ 350 per night...

    Hired at Taxi Car for Darkut Village worth Rs. 2000/- for next morning.. Darkut is last village of the valley... Very beautiful village...
